Making a decision to run a 1:1 programme (where every child has their own device to use in class and at home), be it for one cohort or the whole school, is a big decision to make, and not one that should be made lightly, so here is our guide on how to make it happen.
We have helped many schools, from their initial thinking, past their concerns and right through the decision making and planning process, helping them ensure they have the most appropriate and sustainable programme for their needs.
Where to start?
The first and probably the most important thing to remember is that it is not just about the device but how it is used and integrated as a standard tool for teaching and learning. It can be very easy to be taken in with the popular device of the day and not give enough thought about what you want to do with it and if it is the most effective way of achieving the lesson’s objective. Our first piece of advice therefore is to consider what a 1:1 programme can do for you. Once you know what you want to achieve your project team will be in a far better position to plan and develop the project.
